but the gold takes away from the retro look in my opinion
surely all the bling fitted would have cost you more than the steel frame your really after
but every picture is of all the logos if you dont like components with logos how come evry part has a logo
i dont like logos and have wet and dried all my dura ace logos off then polished them up so only the clued up cyclist spot there dura ace
eveyone else just doesnt notice
The bling was all very cheap (Toronto cycles) and well short of what I am expecting to lay out for a new frame as I have some specific requirements regarding lugs and chroming. I may be able to afford it if I sell my collection of rear dreailleurs.
As for the logos, I wasn't looking for a stealth look, I just dislike the rediculous decals that are now applied to cranks and rims.
And black spokes? There can be few sights more lovely than the twinkling of shiny spokes in the evening sunlight...
